Thirteenth Amendment the cause for chaos in the island: Rambukwella


JO Parliamentarian Keheliya Rambukwella has stated that the 13 th amendment which was claimed at the time as the best solution and the last opportunity has been the cause of chaos and ruin in the land.

He was speaking in the debate on the interim report of the Steering Committee on Constitutional Reforms in Parliament. He went on that the Constitutional Assembly had met 73 occasions, and six political parties had submitted their reports. Another report was there by men who advocated federalism. Lal Wijenayakebeing, member of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party,who had federalism in mind for a long time was appointed to head that committee. Then there was Jayampathy Wickramaratne, a Sama Samaja Party member who supported federalism. He was brought to Parliament through the UNP national list and handed over this task. The public are obviously suspicious of their motives.

He added that the the assembly was illegal. The members made the same statements they made when they brought in the 13th amendment that it was the last opportunity. Their solution led the country towards separatism.
